Chris Young Hurls Six Scoreless Innings In Mets Loss

Chris Young cemented his spot in the Mets rotation with another solid effort this afternoon against the Florida Marlins who beat the Mets 5-0.

Young pitched six shutout innings allowing just four singles and no walks while striking out three batters. He threw 55 of his 80 pitches for strikes.

He has allowed just three runs in 20.1 innings pitched this spring and his 1.33 ERA leads all Mets starters.

Taylor Buchholz also distinguished himself with another scoreless inning and has yet give up a run in eight appearances this spring.

So far, everything is coming up roses for Sandy Alderson.
